Encapsulating the Frame

Post by Bill Edmundson »

I wish I had encapsulated the frame of the Tahoe as I went. Doing this after the flip is a real PITA, not to mention the knees and back. Probably some bloodshed, too.

I agree Bill. I encapsulated after the frames and chines were on and after all the notches were cut. Puddles of cured epoxy gave me extra practice cleaning up the corners of all the notches. :oops: :oops:
